you can play it with constant 30fps on low and 720p or low and 1080p, worth trying to rank up the settings to medium and see if it's stable or not.

I voted yes because I've a GT 750m that is similar in performance to your card and I can achieve what you're asking.

I dont even think you can run it on medium at 30fps 1080p. This game has a very bad optimization

I don't know about that, this game likes its vram. 512 is pretty low. You could try it, the game is really cheap now so :) If it doesn't work on medium bump it down to low, just keep your res. The game looks decent in general
